Sick of pesky frown lines? Jeuveau in Austin may be the answer! This wrinkle-relaxing, non-invasive injectable treats expression lines on your face by blocking the nerve signal that causes the muscle to contract and fold, as it does when you furrow your eyebrows in concentration or frustration. Although the results are temporary, they can be restored with maintenance appointments. To arrange a consultation to discuss Jeuveau, please call Austin Plastic Surgeon.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a botulinum toxin type A injectable in Austin that smooths fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It has been FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines (vertical frown lines between your eyebrows), but it is also used by experienced cosmetic surgeons “off-label” on other types of wrinkles on the face.
Jeuveau treats the signs of aging on the face in Austin. It treats certain types of wrinkles:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- “Smoker’s lines” above the upper lip (which occur on non-smokers as well)
- Forehead lines
These types of wrinkles are caused by the repeated folding of facial muscles, so they are often called expression lines because they are formed by years of smiling, frowning, squinting, grimacing, furrowing your brow in concentration, etc.
Is Jeuveau Painful?
The injections are pretty painless! If you have ever received BOTOX Cosmetic injections, you can expect the same sensation. There may be a slight pinch as the needle is inserted but the feeling goes away quickly.
In the hours following Jeuveau injections in Austin, it is normal to experience tenderness and soreness at the injection site. These side effects are usually tolerated quite well by our patients. We can recommend over-the-counter pain relievers and other ways to reduce discomfort after treatment.
The prep is quite simple. You do not need to do much in the days leading up to your appointment. There is no anesthesia or surgery; you simply show up to your injection appointment!
To get ready for Jeuveau you should:
- Schedule a consultation at Austin Plastic Surgeon
- Discuss what you would like to change and receive personalized recommendations from our surgeons
- Schedule your appointment
- Consider taking the day off from work, although downtime is not necessary
That’s really it! One of the great things about injectables in Austin like Jeuveau is the minimal prep and virtually nonexistent recovery time.
Jeuveau is administered with injections in Austin, using a very fine, narrow needle. We may ask you to scrunch your face up so we can pinpoint the best areas to administer injections. The injection portion of the appointment usually takes about 10 minutes total, although each injection itself takes only seconds.
It is not absolutely necessary to take time off from work or other activities, but you may want to clear your schedule for the rest of the day so you do not have to stress about fitting in the appointment. You should avoid lying down for several hours to prevent any migration or undesirable settling of the medication. Delay strenuous activities that get your heart racing for about 24 hours. Do not rub or massage the injection sites for 24 hours. We can instruct you how to apply a cold compress to the area safely to reduce discomfort and swelling. Redness, swelling, soreness, and irritation at the injection site may persist for several hours to a couple of days.
You may notice the first version of the results after one to two days. The full results will take shape in about a week. Your results will be tailored to the look you discussed with the doctors at Austin Plastic Surgeon. You can expect natural, flattering results that refresh your appearance. Jeuveau lasts about three to four months before another injection appointment in Austin is needed to maintain the effect.
